Stabilization...Day 321...142.1 (-.5 lbs.)

Back down from my time-of-month gain...that's good.

And this despite a fairly high calorie dinner last night. It was my sweetie's birthday, so whipped up a Prosciutto Wrapped Pork Tenderloin (with brown pan gravy), steamed broccoli and Balela (a yummy chick pea/black bean side dish with chopped veg and a light vinegar dressing). The gravy is always deadly and the prosciutto is a big salt culprit...and yet, down 1/2 pound. Ah, thank heavens for portion control.

So, here I sit about 3 lbs. below my goal weight...pretty pleased with myself. Can't decide if I want to dip into the 130s...I would, but I wonder if I'm becoming just a bit obsessive about this weight loss thing. Given my height (5'1" on a big hair day), I can certainly afford to lose more weight, but the question is, why am I considering this? I'm very happy with how I look and feel right now. I can eat well (and occasionally splurge with only moderate consequences) and I know my honey likes me not being quite so rigid.

Which brings me full this desire to hit the 130s just because it's a number I want to see on my scale or am I still trying to lose for all the wrong reasons.

Ah...who knows.

Eat and be well,

Jane Doh!

Stabilization...Day 319...142.6 (+.4 lbs.)

Ahhh...alas and alack, I've gained just shy of a half pound...dang.

Then again, I'm pre-periodic (and I don't mean that silly table we had to learn in high school), so, all things considered, Princess is happy.

This, by the by, during my honey's birthday week (yep, we celebrate for a week)!

Great meal last night...6 oz. of lean steak (on the George Forman grill) and a fabulous, ripe, juicy end-o'-season tomato...yummers! Plus Scamps (my absolutely amazing and fabulous wonder pup) loved the left over scraps and juices.

Today is off to a good start...3 mile walk (normally longer, but I had several time constraints), glass of bubbly (see Birthday Week reference above), but also a nice green apple with Teddy All-Natural Peanut Butter...all in all...I. Am. Good. To. Go!

Also, already 91 oz. of H2O logged for the day.

Go me!

Eat and be well,

Jane Doh!
